This week Christian and Jim dive into the “doomsday” (dramatic much?) cyber event of 2019 -- escaping Docker containers! Formally known as CVE-2019-5736, we dive deep on the technical research undertaken by Dragon Sector to take advantage of Linux namespaces in order to reveal the larger discovery and exploit and what it means for the industry. We cover it from the average guy angle as well, and include discussions on use cases for classic virtualization strategies compared to containerization. We leave some food for thought for next time on how machine learning techniques are impairing methodologies for scientific validation of original research.
Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the
Technologies Shaping the Future! Christian Johnson will bring fresh and
relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.
